Storm Clouds

The darkness

Before the coming rain

Covers the room, and

Enlarges the shadows.

Your hatred of me

Takes me under its dark wings:

A cocoon, a shelter that

Hides and chides, slowly becoming

My view of myself.

When I left,

You told me that the rain was coming,

And I didn’t believe you when

You said

I should go.

“I should go”,

You said,

And I didn’t believe you when

You told me that the rain was coming

When I left.

My view of myself

Hides and chides, slowly becoming

A cocoon, a shelter that

Takes me under its dark wings.

Your hatred of me

Enlarges the shadows,

Covers the room – and

Before the coming rain,

The Darkness.

    Is this author 14 years old with absolutely zero knowledge on music? Has to be. Two out of three songs are irrelevant. Both by shitty bands. Who paid for this?…

    Should we mourn GCSE poetry?
    Wonderful article! Very insightful and brilliantly communicated. I wasn't aware of this issue before, but this article has really brought it to light for me. Thank you very much!
